Terry McAuliffe to help the Obama Campaign

Then Senator Clinton superseded all expectations and brought the house down with her speech. I was feeling really good, but a little nervous still. However, around 9:24 pm (PDT), McAuliffe was being interviewed by Tweety and Olbermann and he said this, "What I would do if I were Barack Obama, I would put Hillary Clinton, I'd put her in that state (Ohio) for the next 72 days. She was the champion of Blue Collar, let her get out there and let her bring those voters home."
McAullife replied, "...now that we are through this convention, I am going to go full-time to help this campaign."
Chris then suggested that Terry and Hillary could bring home Ohio, and Rendell and Biden could secure Pennsylvania, which would allow Obama to focus on the western states (all the while, McAuliffe was enthusiastically nodding his head).
Terry then explained how Governor Ritter won Colorado with 56%, Mark Warner and Tim Kaine can deliver Virginia for us, and how Tedd Strickland has a 64% approval rating in Ohio.
He then said, "We're gonna win this thing."
And THERE'S the peace that I have been missing for sooooooo long!
I now believe that this election is OVER with the combination of Terry McAuliffe's electoral college approach and Obama's mastery for organizing at the grass-roots level.
Rest up that voice, Terry. Senator Obama needs you for the next 72 days!
